Hypocrites for "Human Rights"

I finally found the article I had been looking for when I was pleasantly surprised...  G-d is good! That's for sure.

Let's say, it was happening in Boston, that a group of people calling themselves "Priests for Human Rights" was demonstrating against Catholics moving into a building there.

OK, think about it...

Now, let's change the equation to:

Let's say, it was happening in Boston, that a group of people calling themselves "Priests for Human Rights" was demonstrating against Catholics Jews moving into a building there.

Let's make another change:

Let's say, it was happening in Boston, that a group of people calling themselves "Priests Rabbis for Human Rights" was demonstrating against Catholics Jews moving into a building there.



Now another change:


Let's say, it was happening in Boston Jerusalem, that a group of people calling themselves "Priests Rabbis for Human Rights" was demonstrating against Catholics Jews moving into a building there.



I'm not a fiction writer.  Read all about it here. 

Call them hypocrites or f'kokt (great Yiddish slang, sounds better than the English translation.)  Or do you have a better term?

I agree with Nadia Matar who said it well.

Rabbi's against Jews...a hard concept to wrap your mind around:(

Keli, they call themselves "rabbis" and most follow what could be defined as non-historical, removed from Torah Judaism.

Debbie, I learned the lesson decades ago in NY when I would hang up posters for Soviet Jewry demonstrations in my public high school filled with pro-civil right for Blacks Jews.
"too far away" my classmates said. But they had no problems relating to Biafara and going to rallies for them.

Minne ma, thanks. Longtime pet peeve for me.
